Mad Scientist Potions

Princess B is 4 years old and needed to build up her hand muscles. A friend of mine suggested having her play with pipettes and colored water. This was a fantastic idea. 

Princess B loves to play Mad Scientist and create evil potions. 

To create the ingredients for the potions, simply put a few drops of food coloring into assorted cups, add some water and place a pipette in each color. 

Use an empty cup to mix the potion in. I like to use a clear glass so she can see the potion inside.

This activity not only helps strengthen hand muscles and helps with dexterity, it also helps with color recognition and color mixing. Princess B loves to see what happens when she mixes all the colors together.
